Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 is a bona fide box office sensation. But is it any good, or is it just a prequel for Part 2? Is this another example of movie-going as Tribal Identifier? Is IMAX the best way to see the the latest film adaptation of J.K. Rowling, or will any old widescreen engagement do? Is Dobbie the latest incarnation of the Magic Negro? And who are all these characters, and why are they taking up screen time that could be devoted to Alan Rickman?
These and other questions are answered as The Chronic Rift's Andrea Lipinski joins myself, Lawrence French, and Steve Biodrowski for this week's Cinefantastique Horror, Fantasy & Science Fiction Podcast. Plus, the usual round up of news, events, and home video releases.
